EUROPE | ITALY | AMALFI COAST | RAVELLO

A new identity for a Ravello favorite

One of the Amalfi Coast’s grandest hotels, Palazzo Sasso, reopens this week under new branding. Perched high atop Ravello’s cliffs, the 12th-century palace-turned-hotel is now Palazzo Avino, named after the founding family that restored and reopened the abandoned hotel in 1997. (Sasso was the name of the family who made the very first renovations to the palazzo — oh, back in the 1700s.)

With a new name also comes a new chef to the hotel’s celebrated restaurant, Rossellini’s, which in the past garnered two Michelin stars. After hopping from Michelin starred restaurants in Paris, Munich and London, Chef Michele Deleo earned his own star at Restaurant Il Buco up the coast in Sorrento. No doubt the hotel hopes he’ll bring some of his stardust to Avino.
